Fuck The Facts Releases Fifth New Single

"Pleine Noirceur" is the upcoming album from Canadian grindcore champions Fuck The Facts. Set for release on November 20th via their very own label Noise Salvation, the full length follows their 2015 Juno nominated "Desire Will Rot". "Pleine Noirceur" continues right where the band left off, offering up another slab of their patented “bastardized” grindcore full of all the twists and turns that fans have come to expect.

Leading up to the record's deliverance, the trio has previewed songs "Ailleurs", "Dropping Like Flies", "Everything I Love Is Ending" and the album's title track. Today, just days away from "Pleine Noirceur" discharging to headphones and speakers around the globe, the band is sharing their latest single "An Ending", the second last closer on the album.

Guitarist Topon Das adds:

"This song deviates from the more grindcore and head-bashing tunes on the record to show more of our melodic side. Not referenced as often, but the early days of bands like Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Enchantment & Cemetary definitely had a strong influence on my writing as well. There's a dark and depressing feel to the song that really embodies the theme of the whole album."

Listen to "An Ending" via its premiere on No Clean Singing or check it out below. More...

Dragony Reveals New Album Details

Founded in 2007 and after releasing three studio records, Austrian symphonic power metal heroes Dragony return to their rock opera roots on their brand new album, Viribus Unitis, out January 15, 2021 via Napalm Records. Following up on the conceptual approach of their debut album, Legends, on the new album, the band unveils the true history of their home country. We return to the days when Austria was ruled by emperor Franz Joseph and his wife, empress Sisi – but forget everything you’ve heard and read so far!

Today the band has unleashed an energetic music video for their first single and album opener, "Gods Of War," setting the stage for their imaginative historical concept to unfold.

Dragony about the track:
"The first single "Gods of War" is also the opening track of the album, and sets the stage for the story that is to come: The year is 1867, and Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria is forced to accept the terms of the Austro-Hungarian Compromise after suffering losses in the Austro-Prussian War of 1866, effectively establishing the dual monarchy that became known as the 'k. & k. Monarchy.' In this situation, he is questioning whether his empire even has a future, or only its glorious past.
The music for the song was co-written by Tommy Johansson from Sabaton & Majestica with his partner in Symphony Of Tragedy, Tomas Svedin, with the vocal lines and lyrics having been composed by our singer Siegfried. Musically, it's therefore a very "Scandinavian-sounding" song that adds another texture to the catalogue of Dragony, and we are already very much looking forward to playing this one live at future shows!“

Sabaton's Tommy Johansson on "Gods Of War":
"What Dragony did to 'Gods of War' is far beyond what I could have expected it to turn out when this song was written. How they play and sing this song is just glorious! It’s so powerful and you can sing along to the chorus right away. I’m happy and honored I got to be a part of Dragony, and the song suits well to the rest of this epic album!" More...
